The waveform record doesn't actually support ENUM, it just doesn't bother to define its own recordtype-specific list of data types, but instead uses a generic list from base. I think your best move is to use char or uchar and adopt the standard zero-is-false-nonzero-is-true.

Subject: waveform ENUM FTVL or BOOL FTVL
Our Linux OS based instrument will be running soft IOC. The instrument
supports various data types. One of the data types that I have trouble
supporting in EPICS is array of bool values. My intention was to use
ENUM FTVL for waveform but the problem I'm seeing in the IOC shell is:
missing record support entry table Record Support Routine (get_enum_str)
Record Type waveform PV h:b::adllr4:adc_module:dc_rej_bypass-I.VAL dbGet
I just wanted to confirm that for waveform record FTVL ENUM is indeed
supported. What am I doing wrong?
Here is the PV definition:
Note that using other FTVL values works, but they are not "restrictive"
enough to allow only '0'/'1' or 'false'/'true' values.
